High-spin iron(II) as a semitransparent partner for tuning europium(III) luminescence in heterodimetallic d-f complexes.


The segmental ligand 2-[6-(N,N-diethylcarbamoyl)pyridin-2-yl]-1,1'-dimethyl-5,5'-methylene-2'-(6-methylpyridine-2-yl)bis[1H-benzimidazole] (L3) reacts with a stoichiometric mixture of LnIII (Ln = La, Eu, Gd) and M(II) (M = Zn, Fe) in acetonitrile to produce selectively the heterodimetallic triple-stranded helicates (HHH)-[LnM(L3)3]5+. In these complexes, M… (More)
